How to Change Motorcycle Brake Pads

Yes, brakes just slow you down, man, and we are sure glad they do. It's been said that the fastest motorcyclists use their brakes the most; a sentiment we wholeheartedly agree with. But brakes wear out, even if the brake material isn't worn completely away, you may still be due for a new set of pads. Fear not, getting new stoppers onto your motorcycle isn't all the difficult. Watch as we show you, step-by-step, how to do it.

However, since you'll be working on a component that controls how your motorcycle comes to a stop, if you do not feel entirely comfortable performing this task, please take your motorcycle to a certified motorcycle technician.
